Warmer weather and longer days bring more adventures and greater dangers for curious pets and unknowing pet owners.

As pet owners enjoy the great outdoors with their pets it is important to keep in mind that more time spent outdoors presents a multitude of risks to our pets and ourselves.

Doggie deception: Oklahomans breaking law made to help handicapped

It seems unthinkable.

Oklahomans are breaking a law intended to help the handicapped.

Pet lovers who don’t want to leave their four-legged friends behind are dressing them up to look like service dogs and taking them everywhere.

It’s illegal and unethical but that hasn’t stopped scores of people  from slapping a vest and patches on their pooch to impersonate a service dog.

Because of privacy laws, businesses aren’t allowed to ask if the dog is really a service dog or a fake.

For a small price, anyone can buy cape and take their dogs to concerts, get around rental agreements or into restaurants where untrained animals were never intended.

These cheaters are making life more difficult for those who rely on service animals each day.

Lance West is investigating what is being done to stop this despicable crime of doggie deception.

He will have his full report ready at 10 p.m.

New bill to allow Okla. horses slaughtered for meat

OKLAHOMA CITY – Lawmakers in our state’s house are attempting to pass a bill that would legalize the slaughter of horses in the Sooner State.

For many, horses are more than just livestock, they are pets.

Tribute Equine Rescue CEO Natalee Cross said, “Horses aren’t your typical livestock animals, they are pets, they are compassionate.”

Law makers said many people simply can’t afford to take care of their horses.
